Ichiro To Sign With Seattle Mariners

Ichiro To Sign With Seattle Mariners

Seattle is thin on outfield depth on the 40-man roster at the moment - particularly with Guillermo Heredia still on the mend from October shoulder surgery.

Will Ichiro be back in Seattle?

The news comes as the Mariners learned they'll be without outfielder Ben Gamel for four to six weeks due to a strained right oblique muscle. Ichiro has been working out in Japan and was expected to play there in 2018 unless he had an offer from Major League Baseball. However, as Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times points out (on Twitter), Mariners right fielder Mitch Haniger is dealing with tendinitis in his hand and hasn't taken batting practice in almost a week.

Gamel, who is one of the best defensive outfielders in the game, hit.275 with 11 home runs, 27 doubles, five triples and 59 RBIs in his first full season in the big leagues.

He would go on to win AL rookie of the year and MVP in 2001, leading Seattle to a record 116-win season.




Ichiro became a free agent when the Miami Marlins declined his $2 million club option for 2018.

Suzuki came to Seattle in 2001 after playing 9 years in Japan.

In total, Suzuki is a 10-time all-star, three-time silver slugger, two-time batting champ, holds the single-season hits record with 262 that he set in 2004, and boasts 3,080 total hits, good for 21st on the all-time major-league hits leaderboard.

On July 4 of past year, Ichiro's batting average was.202, but the remainder of the season he hit.315 and finished at.255.

The Mariners will be without their starting left fielder to begin the season.
